Current Work

Australian cities will reflect the greatest extent of population growth and diversity in the coming decades (Commonwealth of Australia, 2016). Accompanying these population trends, people with neurological, neurosensory, and mental health conditions (including cognitive debility associated with ageing and chronic illness) will become more representative of the general community (ABS 2013). Our homes, hospitals, health services, educational facilities, cultural and public spaces will be expected to respond to this population need and provide enriched, inclusive and accessible environments that promote citizenship and quality of living for people with brain injury, stroke, mental health conditions (including PTSD and schizophrenia), ageing, dementia and developmental conditions. Our Environmental Enrichment impact and evaluation research program aims to examine the relationship between people and place and optimise human health through best-evidence environmental design and interventions.
